    The cauliflower was bland no cheese sauce and some looked black and it looked as if it had been there for a long time I had a small amount and it did not have any taste .this was at peek time .the rest of the meal was ok as roast go nothing special..I ended up with a back ache had to sit on the edge of the bench seat as table was too faraway and ended up with no back support and back ache. On the positive side had a lovely waitress.I will not be in a hurry to return to the Toby.

    Gets very busy with people queueing along side tables, which makes it very hard for the servers to get by with drinks

    Disappointed that cauliflower was not in a sauce.. Looked very overcooked and one vegetable tray had not been replenished ( peas?)

    The gentleman serving the food was excellent, really quick, asking what the next customer wants as he’s finishing off the current one, which I like.

    Was an amazing experience and lovely food. We arrived really early (mistake on our part) and the lady at the front said they may be able to get us in early, we didn't think we would as it was very busy which we understand. They managed to fit us in early which we really good of them. Also the staff members we all ready friendly especially our server and the chef as he was dancing around and being super happy for a Sunday evening. Lovely place to eat 10/10

    Excellent waiter service ,the food was good and we didn't have to queue long to get our cravery.The only thing that was an issue was that it was very warm ,unable to access windows to open ,even the staff were suffering.

    The lady at the front desk was not at all very welcoming, but the waitress who took our drinks orders was efficient.

    Food quality was great meats excellent however the service was appalling - the staff spent most of the time looking at the till working out what was ordered by whom and what was left. It was pre ordered anyway so there isn’t any excuse ! When your paying £55 each Christmas Day YOU EXPECT some sort of service there was no asking about the food, no repeat drinks offered, very slow service yet it wasn’t that busy as we were the last sitting, and the Xmas pud was burnt (way over microwaved it was hard ) sorry you have to do much better

    Very busy had to queue for carvery but food was good quality and staff were working hard to keep everything replenished

    The food was cold, despite liking my vegetables on the firm side these were under cooked, the cue were a mile long (was standing for an hour), as they had the 50% off voucher they should had 2 chefs serving, all in all it was pandemonium, definitely wouldn't visit this Toby branch again.

    The best roast potatoes ???? ever Would recommend them

  • Laurence H.2 reviews

    The meat was very good, why they put massive Yorkshire puddings on the plate is beyond me, apart from filling the plate. The veg was average, the roast spuds were really bad. My last visit was actually very good. Not impressed this time.

  • Catherine B.2 reviews

    Great welcome and service (as always). My only slight criticism is that the plates were cold and that made the meal cold by the time I sat down. Good selection of veggies though, our plates were empty by the time they were collected! I enjoyed my lunch!

  • Maricel G.1 review

    Whilst we were excited to visit Toby’s again with my husband and mom-in-law, the food turned out to be a huge disappointment. Firstly the meat that was offered to us were rather too thin and fatty. The vegetables selections were also aweful. Bur. Parsnips, rock hard potatoes that keep on bouncing on my plate and too hard to slice with and the pototoes were tasteless. The cabbage needed salt, the cauliflower simply lacks seasonings. The food during this visit was extremely terrible.

    Plates were not clean, service area dirty with food all over it. Person looking after our table was very unfriendly . Very disappointing . With service

    The waiting staff where excellent but had to queue for quite a while as they seem to have run out of potatoes and vegetables. Once replenished, in dribs and drabs, itmoved very well.

    I always enjoy Toby however on this occasion I was disappointed. The roast potatoes in beef fat were delicious. The Turkey was unusually dry but still edible. The other vegetables I had were good. The Yorkshire was impossible to cut let alone eat. I love Yorkshire pudding so this really did ruin my lunch.

    The food was lovely, apart from the roast potatoes. Way to overdone for my taste. Unfortunately it was very busy when we came, and we had to join the end of a very long queue.

  • Helen R.1 review

    Good value roast and tasty for the price but not exactly the best. Food could be warmer, potatoes could be nicer if they were crisp. And the gravy was tasteless

  • Debbie B.1 review

    July 24, 2021


    Was ok not a massive selection of Vegas and the leeks were completely over loaded with salt which spoiled them, the lady serving was lovely although she seemed run off her feet. Would definitely go back again

  • Sharron E.2 reviews

    The staff were very attentive and checked throughout if we were happy with everything. The man slicing the meat was chatty. Tge man dishing the veg was a bit slapdash and the food was just piled onto the plate which was a little off putting. Overall it is good value for the quantity but I only managed to eat half.

    Lovely food as always and generous portions, even when served by the chef. The room was a little hot and stuffy, which wasn't great considering covid recommendations. We were confused by the requirement for a waitress to take our plate from the chef and then take it to the table. She had no gloves on and touched everyone's plates, potentially also touching everyone's dinner. This appeared to be one extra unnecessary person involved with handling our food. Maybe Toby Carvery could explain this rule? Overall a nice evening but left us confused with company policy.
